Case Description

Lifting & Contouring With Fillers

Cheek enhancement is performed to improve the appearance of cheeks that have become sunken or hollow, or have begun to sag with age. The treatment can also highlight the cheekbones. Cheek enhancement is performed using injectable fillers to temporarily improve the volume of the cheeks, increasing definition and fullness.Attractive cheekbones are an important element of facial beauty.

Well-defined cheeks create balance, improve the facial profile, and are a symbol of youth. Some men and women are frustrated because their cheeks have never been well-contoured, while many others have lost facial volume with age and would like to restore fullness for a more youthful appearance. With dermal fillers such as RESTYLANE®, RESTYLANE DEFYNE®, JUVÉDERM, JUVÉDERM VOLUMA XC®, JUVÉDERM VOLLURE® and RADIESSE®, no matter what the reason for cheek enhancement, improvements that look natural and not over done is possible.

How Cheek Dermal Fillers Work

Dermal fillers are FDA-approved products made with naturally occurring substances. They are injected beneath the skin in the targeted areas using a very fine needle. Once the filler substance has been injected, it plumps up the skin from beneath, filling wrinkles or augmenting facial features such as cheeks. People often combine dermal fillers with wrinkle relaxers like BOTOX Cosmetic or Dysportfor a more complete facial enhancement as evidence by the actual client picture to the left.

Treatment with dermal fillers is an entirely non-surgical procedure.  During the cheek enhancement procedure, the filler material can be injected in several ways, such as:

  • Above the cheekbones to achieve a chiseled look

  • Into the soft tissue of the cheeks, "lifting" the area to correct an aged or sunken appearance

When performed by Lynnette Allen, NP-C in Long Island, injections of cheek dermal fillers such as RESTYLANE, RESTYLANE DEFYNE, JUVÉDERM, JUVÉDERM VOLUMA XC, JUVÉDERM VOLLURE or RADIESSE, very natural looking results are consistently achieved. The results can last from several months to over a year, depending upon the specific filler used. Treatment is repeatable to ensure continued improvement, and fine adjustments can be made with each procedure.

Many surgeons, dermatologists, and other practitioners offer dermal fillers to reduce the appearance of wrinkles and creases. However, using dermal fillers to contour facial features, such as cheeks, requires a level of skill along with an artisitic eye for detail that that very few injectors possess.

Having performed over a thousand facial injections, Lynnette Allen, NP-C is among an elite group of injectors that process both the injection skills and artistic eye to effectively use dermal fillers as a sculpting tool thereby ensuring her patients refreshed and natural looking results.
